Up Against It

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Matt Collar
Guitarist Doug Munro has a chicken-scratch sound and penchant for brief melodic statements that can be infuriating for those jazz passengers waiting for aural liftoff. John Scofield-isms aside, Munro's Up Against It does contain some inventive arrangements based around the Hammond B-3 organ of Jerry Z. Despite a humdrum version of Miles Davis and Charlie Parker's "Donna Lee," most of Up Against It is easily recommended. Notably, Munro's version of "Softly As in a Morning Sunrise" utilizes a creepy, Munsters-sounding background organ riff, while the title track is straight-up '60s soul-jazz.
